Lincoln Corridor Plan
Lincoln Avenue Improvements:
- The Lincoln Corridor Plan included a conceptual design for Lincoln Avenue between Jefferson/Riverside and Lemay. Funding has been secured to proceed with a more detailed design ("Final Design"), as well as construction of the segment between the bridge and Lemay.
- Final Design will begin in 2015, and construction of the segment just west of the bridge and Lemay will likely begin May 2016 or later. The replacement of the Lincoln bridge over the Poudre River will likely occur within the next 5-10 years.
- The ten short-/mid-term neighborhood improvements projects identified in the Lincoln Corridor Plan have been funded in the 2015-16 budgets
- A new Neighborhood Advisory Committee (NAC) has been created to help implement those projects. Notes from the first NAC meeting are available here.
- The Neighborhood Projects include several new sidewalks in the Buckingham, Andersonville/San Cristo/Via Lopez, and Alta Vista neighborhoods. Through the Art in Public Places Program, we are installing pedestrian pavers in those sidewalks with art that celebrates the history of the neighborhoods. You are invited to submit art for the pavers! Read more about the project and/or submit an application. Note that entries will be accepted through August 28.
